Star-Crossed: a short story
Felicity is just a small town girl living her small town life when a friendly alien race invades Earth. Felicity doesn't think all that much about it because while she's read about them in the papers and seen them on the news, she's never seen one in her town. Until one day when one of them shows up in the diner where she works, that is. He's gorgeous and kind and sexy, and upon their first meeting, he confesses he's in love with her. The only problem is, Felicity is already in a committed, albeit rather unhappy, relationship with her long-term boyfriend, Artie. Will Felicity give up the only life she's ever known to be with a man from outer space? Or will she settle for what's familiar?
